Buffalo board, Riga ply or marine ply deck?

I am contemplating changing my deck on Pacific 22 (converted to outboard)

Has any one got preferences on the above?

I have Riga ply on my builders trailer and its a good job just interested in people's experiences on using the above?

Thanks

What's on the Ivor williams trailer floors that lasts for ever at the end of the day it will encapsulated in glass fiber & flowcoat to seal it anyway so long as it's strong enough.

Out of those 3 options, Marine Ply is the only one I'd use.

X2 Tried Tested Strong easy to work with...and longevity well proven!...for an Allrounder Utility RIB takes still some beating!

Stich & sow canoe builders use marine ply & epoxy resin & various woven cloths to cover & waterproof for info

RIBase
Apart from a couple of areas on mine, the plywood deck had survived 25 years of use.

I can't comment on the Buffalo or Riga board but I'll be putting plywood down again. I suspect using good quality marine ply and making sure the edges and any holes are properly sealed are the key to longevity.

Mine was just painted and neither encapsulated in GRP or flow coated. It has still taken a significant investment in demolition tools to remove the old deck.

Mine is still fairly solid - the paint has flaked in parts to reveal the marine ply - I just need to give it a good sand and then paint it or was thinking of using grey flowcoat? I have 12mm stable mats on the deck at the moment.
